1Dear Mr Hodgson
3Thanks for your letter & the enclosures which which I shall return. I
4shall arrive in England next Saturday the 11th by the 10.15 train from
5Dover. I shall not go to 30 St Mary Abbotts Terrace at once, as my
6friend Dr Corthorn is away having a holiday but shall stay at some
7small quiet hotel in the West, if I can find one, till she returns
8I’ll let you know my address when I’ve fixed one, in case you
9should be in London. I’d like to have a talk with you about South
10African Affairs, which are most interesting just now.
12Yours sincerely,
13Olive Schreiner
